  • The questions of this practice test are based on the content of the book "Discover Canada". A lot of the questions are selected from the actual test paper.
  • LearningExpress: If you have a valid library card, click on LearningExpress (under "Choose a Database") to get access to citizenship tests. Once you are at the LearningExpress site, see 'Citizenship'. Note: Electoral District Maps for Federal and Provincial representatives are identical.

The Canadian citizenship test includes a section about your local municipal, provincial and federal government. A citizenship judge may ask you about this information at a citizenship interview. Some of the information you may need to know can be found on this page which has Questions and Answers on Government.
